Our work

An overview of what we are working on and have worked on. This is not a roadmap and these plans can change at any time. Florin is decentralized and the users determine what will and will not be implemented.

We are now working on

Holding Sync
Time worked: 3420 hours

Fast and efficient synchronization for all applications using our holding system.

Electron interface system
Time worked: 2318 hours

The new wallet interface will use Electron. This means that our backend must be able to connect to all functions on the frontend. All those connections need to be built. A new system always brings bugs and they have to be fixed. There is a known bug where windows wallets crash during mining and holding. Unfortunately, there is still too little information to fix this bug. This means monitoring and testing, which takes quite a lot of time.

Completely redesigned iOS wallet
Time worked: 1920 hours

The iOS app has been completely rebuilt. The interface is completely new and there are several improvements in terms of ease of use and performance.

Up next

Excluding unexpected bug fixes or urgent functionality requests.
All-new Florin app for Android

The Android app for Florin will have a completely new interface and several improvements in stability and functionality.

Florin cloud holding

Direct integration of cloud holding into Florin applications so you only need a mobile app for holding.

Access with Florin

A login and access functionality in the Florin application for websites and events.

Integration payment providers and payment plugins

An easy way for webshops and physical stores to accept Florin as a payment method.

Florin NFT functionality

Introducing the NFT transaction type for various applications.

Time worked: 310 hours
Last action: 22.07

CORE – Major load time performance increase on large wallets, especially on machines with slower disks
CORE – Fix an issue that was causing unnecessarily frequent flushing to disk; this should bring large performance improvements for machines with slow disks
CORE – Fix a sync issue that would sometimes cause new installs to get stuck when syncing the first few blocks
CORE – Apply some optimisations to ConnectBlock calls that should improve performance quite substantially on some machines
CORE/UI – Introduce a separate mining parameter for number of threads to use for “arena setup” when mining so that this can be set independently of “mining threads”
RPC – “setgenerate” gains an extra parameter for the above, all miners should be aware of this as previous setgenerate syntax may fail
RPC – Add “selected_shavite_implementation”, “selected_echo_implementation” and “selected_argon_implementation” to “getmininginfo” output
RPC – Add arena setup time to “gethashps” output
CORE – Introduce some code that makes it easier for users that missed the fork to update with any manual intervention
CORE – Introduce some performance improvements to the code
CONSENSUS – Fix a rare issue with index based utxo getting corrupted (memory only, disk data remained valid)
